The Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) Divisional Union -PSWU of TUC have thrown their weight around the decision taken by the Management of the GACL to suspend McDan Aviation due certain infractions on the use of the Terminal 1.
The letter sited by GH-Aviation states that “the divisional union representing the general staff of GACL wish to commend management for boldly calling out McDan Aviation over various infractions and total disregard to the operating procedures at the Airport.”
The letter further stated the standards and recommended practices (SARPS) required of all airport operations prescribed by the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO). “This is the ensure the safe, orderly and secured running of airports and aerodromes across the world” – read the letter.

From the letter, it can be deduced that, any infractions with regard to the SARPS may get the airport downgraded or closed. It also questioned whether other “operators were above the ICAO Regulations and security of the state.”
The letter also brings to bear some financial obligations that McDan Aviation has not completed payment for, i.e. the company owes GACL a total of USD4,505,034.00 and GHC227,293.00.
The Union tasked the board and the government to “empower the management to adequately discharge its responsibilities without fear or favor.”
